The Prison Service manages prisons in Ireland. They also offer a voluntary and confidential Victim Liaison Service which allows for victims to receive information about the offender who committed an offence against them. This allows for victims to know when an offender is due to be released, whether there are any special release conditions, whether the offender is due to appear in front of the Parole Board, and whether the offender escapes or dies while in custody.
